Project Runway the Finale: Pretty Dresses All the Same

Sing to Little Boxes, theme song of Weeds

Anya Ayoung-Chee's collection. Images@Fashion Development Group
Pretty dresses on the runway,
Pretty dresses made of flowing fabrics,
Low cut dresses on the runway,
The winner's outfits are all the same.
There's a kaftan and a kaftan
And a swim suit and a kaftan,
And they're all made out of flowing fabrics
And they all look just the same.

And the viewers in their houses
All were rooting for a choking Viktor
And the judges with their score cards
Decided Anya all the same.
There was Josh along with Anya
And he too was the judges' fav'rite.
Despite bedazzlers and a mean streak,
Despite his outfits made of ticky tacky,
Josh came in second all the same.

As those two rode high on score cards,
K and V got tepid comments,
Dismissed like flotsam, dissed like amateurs,
Told to go, and auf wiedersehened,
Told to pack their sewing kits,
Told that all their pretty outfits,
All had come out pretty lame.

As for Michael and for Heidi
and for Nina and the other judges,
All their comments sounded biased,
And their judgments were all ticky tacky,
for they all ruined Project Runway.
What a gosh-darned-awful shame.

Winner Anya will start her fashion line
And Josh will raise more hackles
And their outfits made of ticky tacky
Will all look just the same.
There's a green one and a pink one
And a blue one and a yellow one,
And they're all made out of flowing fabrics
And they all look just the same.

They all look pretty much the same

YES YES YES!!!! That was fabulous. I hope somehow, some way, it is read by Bunim Murray the producers of this new, foul, horrid, Project Runway.

I understand, Ever Hopeful, that Project Runway 9 is down a million viewers from Project Runway 8. So justice did come after the Gretchen, now Anya, debacles. My sense is that Project Runway All Stars will temporarily boost ratings for the franchise, since those designers have a proven track record.

After that, it is anyone's guess of how many viewers Project Runway 10 will attract or keep!

Having said that, Viktor (my favorite) choked. He was asked to ramp up his styling, not throw some of his fabulous print outfits out and replace them with tacky black, sheer outfits that looked like they were ordered from a Victoria Secret's catalogue. As Nina Garcia said in her tweets, Viktor was her second choice, but he produced only 5 good outfits. I tend to agree with her.
